Oene van Geel en Motoko Honda will be performing as a duo on this evening, but they will also be joined by the Japanese dancer Kenzo Kusuda, who is a very active force in the Amsterdam (improv) dance scene and beyond. Kusuda takes the audience to a world filled with imagination. Simply with the body’s movement on an almost empty stage, he is able to reveal that which is invisible.


Lucija Gregov is a cellist, improviser and sound artist whose work describes and explores new sonic landscapes. Adding to her instrumental cello practice, she integrates analogue synthesizers and field recordings to her compositions. Her visceral approach to improvisation proposes a distinctive way of creating, co-creating, thinking and performing in and about current sonic dynamic. Following indicators of flow, experimentation, investigation of unexplored physical and spiritual spaces, Lucija’s work enables emergence of practice and sound materials that are open-ended and continuously transformative.

Through many interdisciplinary collaborations, she seeks to push the boundaries of traditional cello playing which further extends her interpretation, technique and ideas. She has been developing projects and researching in the field of classical music, electro acoustic music, noise, improvisation, experimental music, radio and sound art, as well as community art.
